First Trailer: “Assassin’s Creed”

It has been a long wait, but finally the first trailer and poster have hit for the film adaptation of the “Assassin’s Creed” video game franchise. A true teaser, the clip sets up the basic premise and then just runs with some gorgeous visuals albeit with an odd music choice.

Michael Fassbender stars in the film as Desmond Miles, a man who was to be executed who is instead put into the animus – a system that allows him to access the genetic memories of his ancestor – an assassin during the time of the Spanish Inquisition. The film opens in December.
